Research projects

The Violence Research Group is involved in a number of ongoing research projects.

Our staff are constantly engaged in new projects that research the key issues surrounding violence and the impact they have on society.

Crossing different academic disciplines and collaborating with the local community, our projects provide new information and perspectives on the causes of violence and how they can be prevented.

Led by a Principal Investigator, each project has set of aims and objectives that guide the study.

Most of our projects have a collaborative element, requiring the assistance of the wider community.
